Iaquinta steps in to face Nurmagomedov

New UFC 223 main event – Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Al IaquintaEvents MMA News 


Undefeated UFC lightweight Khabib Nurmagomedov, will now face New York’s own Al Iaquinta for the official lightweight title. The Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Al Iaquinta bout will take place this Saturday at UFC 223: Khabib vs Iaquinta at Barclays Center.

The change in the main event occurred when featherweight champion, Max Holloway, was deemed unfit to fight during today’s early UFC 223 weigh in.

Due to Iaquinta not making the 155-pound championship limit, the UFC lightweight title will only be eligible to be won by Nurmagomedov. Should Iaquinta win, he will not be awarded the title, but if Nurmagomedov wins, he will be crowned the undisputed champion.

Iaquinta is riding a five-fight win streak with notable victories over Jorge Masvidal, Kevin Lee and Diego Sanchez. On Saturday, he gets the biggest fight of his life in his home state against the most feared lightweight on the planet.

Due to a change in the main event, customers may receive a full ticket refund at the original point of purchase.

  14. Too bad, that would’ve been the fight I would like to see.

  15. Sal Destralo or if khabib gets a hold of Al.

  16. I definitely think Khabib will win but most people don’t know much about Al and don’t realise how good he is. Still an awesome fight.

  17. Agreed Dane Beilken. I think AL is gonna shock a lot of people. If he’s in decent shape he won’t need 5 rounds. (Khabib wins this fight if it goes past 3-4)

  18. Al is a tank! He is crazy good. Much better replacement than Pettis.

  19. I’d like to see Paul Felder fight Kabib

  20. So who the fuk is it Pettis of Iaquinta?

  21. Couldn’t make weight on 24 hours notice.

  22. In mma. The margin for error is very small. Definately a possibility of Al getting a KO.

  23. Where is Brian Ortega?

  24. Iaquinta is a weapon. So underrated.

  25. Who cares hey. I’m canning the card.

  26. Chris Kris what the hell is going on?

  27. Khabib is going to throw this guy around like a rag doll.

  28. Highly doubtful.

  29. Robbie Hillis Arron Craig

  30. Betcha Iaquinta knocks him out. Watch
